The Orchid Grey Dress

Here it is, The Orchid Grey Dress from ModCloth! I was so excited to receive this dress in the mail, it's even prettier in person.

Belt: Vintage via Savers (1.00)
Shoes: Vintage via Savers (3.00)

Don't you love the explosion of spring flowers in the background? They match my outfit! In truth, these photos were taken on a very grey day (yesterday) so the yellow flowers in my dress and purple flowers behind me were a welcome pick-me-up! I can't complain too much though, it's 80 degrees out! In addition to naming this pretty dress after me, ModCloth also posted a little interview on their blog, if you'd like to read about what I do in my spare time (ha) and what books and movies I'm into, you can head on over there and read all about me! Also go here to see my Spring favorites off their site! I have a bunch of weddings coming up this spring, this dress will be perfect for them!

ModCloth kindly provided the dress and necklace in this post

Absolutely LOVE the dress! I wasn't super into it on ModCloth, but seeing it styled - different story! Also, I'm dying for that necklace...not to mention I have serious hair envy going on. Congrats on your signature dress! Yay!

Alyssa said...

My goodness, what is NOT to like about this outfit... You are so lucky to have a dress named after you, how fun and special! One day you'll be able to tell your grandkids, "Look, this dress was named after me!" and it'll be so neat! Your hair is amazing, I'm sure you're told that all the time. I'm hoping that when my hair grows out it will look basically like yours, lol. Also, I really like how you include how much things in your outfit are!

piglet said...

Oh lucky you, this dress is so lovely!
